Need a fishing getaway? You’re gonna wanna build a minimalist cabin on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington like this one.
The Sol Duc Cabin was built as a low-maintenance destination for an angling owner who really wanted to get away from it all.
Designed by Tom Kundig, of Olson Kundig Architects, the steel-clad structure is 350 square feet and sits upon stilts, helping to protect the cabin from any impending floods.
The two-story building can be completely protected with large steel panels that slide over floor to ceiling windows, perfect for an impending storm, or just peace of mind when you’re away.
The interior includes a living space, kitchen, and a loft bedroom.
Here’s a not from the project’s profile:
Built for a client who fly-fishes for steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula, this steel-clad 350 sf cabin on stilts can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The cabin’s rugged patina and raw materiality respond to the surrounding wilderness while its verticality provides a safe haven during occasional floods from the nearby river.
